I went to Brescia to visit my technical sponsors and we discussed about next season! They were really happy with the work we did in 2011 and decided to be my technical partner also for the Dakar and all the season 2012. This is great news for me since i’m trying to reduce at the maximum the costs and find some financial sponsor to cover the remaining expenses. I’m speaking of italian company Technomousse! As always visiting them is extremely fun because they are a young and very active company continously working on improving their products.
Speaking of Dakar we discussed about the fact that the bike will have a considerable amount of weight more than the standard bike and that there will be very fast special stages, so obviously i will be racing the Dakar with the Sahara line. I used the Technomousse Sahara during all the world championship rallies. Next week i will get some new Sahara mousse for testing because they have just change both in the Enduro and Sahara part of the material’s composition which should make the mousse’s life longer. As soon as i get the chance (and the money) to go testing i will update you!
This is how the Sahara Mousse looks like, pretty different from the common mousse.
This is the Gel Tube you find in every mousse box.
This is their latest product, a completely dismountable tyre changer that costs 95€ and that when dismounted it fit’s in a very little box, perfect when you have space problems!
Technomousse is going to change company logo for 2012, here is a preview of the new logo.
Myself with Marco and Claudio (the two managers running Technomousse) in their office after having signed the contract for 2012.
For anyone interested in their products, they make shipments in all Europe and you contact them through their website www.technomousse.com (italian and english version) or through the email firstname.lastname@example.org
